The Concertina Record was originally released in 1980 on KICKING MULE Records (KM311). On deletion rights reverted to me. This is an extract from the original sleeve notes, it should give you a good idea of what the recordings are all about.
"The intention was to make an album featuring the English Concertina in a variety of different musical settings. Roughly speaking side one is fairly light in character, while the Brandenburg Concerto, which occupies most of side two, explores the Concertina's potential in an area of music with which it is not normally associated.
A full use of studio facilities has been made throughout, in that most tracks feature several concertinas 'multi-tracked', thus creating a concertina band effect."

Great Recording of the Brandenburg Concerto - uplifting and inspiring - thanks a lot for both recording and sharing it!

On the now missing CD cover (where'd it go?) Lea discussed the making of the Brandenburg Concerto.
This recording is mixed from single instrument-at-a-time tracks and has many (as many as 5?) layers of concertina, plus the harpsichord, all performed in-serial by Lea, and mixed on late 70's era equipment (he didn't have state-of-the-art).
Subject: Need repeat performance of the Brandenburg
The Brandenburg setting on concertinas is so right that it needs to be performed more often. I like it so much that I hate to criticize, but the 1st movement is a bit stiff. I bet that after a few more performances, it would start to bounce delightfully.

As a fan of free-reed instruments, Bach, and Scottish music, I was happy to see this collection. This reminds me of a tape I got featuring the hammered dulcimer. It had similar repertoire (with a bit more of a jazz/world lean). Every obscure instrument should have its champion. My only complaint would be the timing in the Brandenburgs. The really fast passages came out fine, but there were some unintentional-sounding phrasings here and there :).

This is a wonderful 7 piece collection of classical jams by top-notch performers and audio-tech.
Any classical fan should pick this compilation up, it's just too good to pass on. Nothing too original, but Bach is timeless and solid.
